Our Healthcare System isn’t Broken for Those Who Make Money Off Of It

Daniel Paull MD explains that our healthcare system isn't broken for those who make money off of it.

Many say that we need to fix our healthcare system, and that it is broken.

It is certainly broken for physicians and patients.

But it is not broken for those who make significant amounts of money off of the status quo.

Those main players are large hospital systems, pharma, and our good friends at the health insurance companies.

For them, the system isn’t broken at all, it is working as intended and they are profiting extremely well off of it.

 

So the system is working as designed, enriching those who make all of the rules.

Unsurprisingly, the system putting profits first has marginalized the doctor patient relationship.

Hospital systems and insurance companies see it as a nuisance, as physicians strive to put the patient first (usually).

They liken working with physicians to herding cats, which maybe is true, but that is only because we try to work for the patient, not the hospital system.

The solution?

It’s simple. Not easy, but simple.

Stop working with hospital systems and health insurance companies.

This will allow us to create a new system, away from the profiteering that those entities do.

Many will say that it’s not possible, but they are wrong, many are doing it and have been doing it. Change isn’t easy.
